    About Author

    1. Gideon Defoe never meant to become an author When Defoe bumped into a woman he had pursued during his time studying archaeology and anthropology at Oxford, they began chatting about what they were up to Realising that his job temping for Westminster council was not going to win him any romantic points, he told her that he was writing a novel She asked to see it, at which point he found that he really was writing a novel His manuscript was originally circulated among friends, who photocopied it and passed it on until, eventually, it fell into the hands of a literary agent.He was raised by his mother in the south of England His late father wrote thrillers that featured a lot of sexy Russian spies seducing middle aged men uncannily like him His mother says he is a direct descendant of Daniel Defoe He says he won t be convinced until he has seen the family tree.

    1. Have at you, you scabrous coves Here be humourous treasure as The Pirates have an adventure with whaling that features that miserable old pirate Ahab.Things you might learn about during this adventure DebtWhale ConservationNantucketMultiple uses for physeter macrocephalusThe migratory course of the accursed Great White WhaleHow The Pirates once had an adventure with a mosquitoAll the things I said about the first book remain true for this one, Python, ham, Discworld, cutlasses, Snicket, 42, it s [...]


    2. Want a book that doesn t take itself too seriously and that s gonna make you feel to the floor laughing Look no The Pirate Captain and his crew are not fearsome pirates that wreck havoc on the seven seas, so don t expect your usual pirate story This a well done parody The Pirate Captain wants to trade his old ship for a new one whose mast doesn t fall every second so he goes to Cutlass Liz and end up buying one he can t afford So begins the quest to find six thousands doubloons to pay Liz with, [...]


    3. Read this with my kids They re 5 and 9 and while the humor and vocabulary was a bit advanced for them, it was still a blast and I got to explain things like cutlasses, harpoons, and Nantucket, while doing really badly every British accent I could think of from Alan Rickman to Joan Collins Come on, folks Pirates With a sorta Monty Python Douglas Adams sense of humor the White Whale stalks Captain Ahab throughwait for itLas Vegas What could possibly be fun.


    4. 3.5This book doesn t require too much thought or participation, so I won t put much thought into my review of it It s also been just under a month since I actually went and read it, so my thoughts are a lil cloudy, but it just wasn t as good as The Pirates In an Adventure with Scientists Sure, it was fun, breezy an easy read, but while the plot matches Scientists in inventiveness, it just doesn t have the same spark to it Alas, Ahab was fun, Pirate Captain s writing skills were surprisingly adro [...]


    5. First published on Booking in Heels.At the end of The Pirates in an Adventure with Moby Dick, there are ten pages of other pretend titles by the same author, and I love this book so much that I would happily read every single one of them I m sure The Pirates in an Adventure with Heavy Petting and The Pirates in an Adventure with a Steep Hill would sell especially well.Enough about the other books, let s look at this one In the interests of full disclosure, I haven t read Moby Dick the proper boo [...]


    6. Hilarious As I have read Moby Dick in its entirety, I loved the not so subtle jabs at that novel My favorite quote The other pirates were doing their best to make conversation with the whaler crew, but they were a strange bunch, and most of their stories placed a lot emphasis on icebergs and interminable months spent at sea rather than feasts and fighting Also, just as one of the whalers would actually seem to be getting to the point of an anecdote, they were liable to wander off suddenly on lo [...]


    7. Defoe s The Pirates series tell you or less all you need to know about my sense of humour I love them, especially the one with Communists This absurd adventure is as hilarious as ever To determine whether you d enjoy it, consider this quote Ahab paused, and turned to the pirates You might say that they are having a whale of a time The pirates looked at Ahab There was an embarrassed silence That was a joke, said Ahab Whale of a time You see The pirates went on looking at Ahab I rarely make jokes [...]



    8. I smirked a few times but otherwise this was just really, really tired or I m just an old cynic One or the other.


    9. 1 2The pirate crew have just bought a fancy new ship to replace their current ailing vessel it s really not normal for the mast to fall down three times a week , but they don t have ready cash to pay for it What to do to avoid incurring the wrath of Cutlass Liz, pirate ship dealer and the bloodthirstiest lass on the high seas Apparently there s a fella named Ahab who s offering a sizeable reward for the capture of a certain white whale This is the second in The Pirates series by Gideon Defoe I p [...]


    10. Review Taken From The Pewter WolfThe Pirate Captain can t seem to keep out of trouble, can he After he splashes out on the fancy new ship, the Lovely Emma, he finds himself spending six thousand doubloons he doesn t have In debt to the beautiful but deadly Cutlass Liz, who will happily cut them easily in two, he and his crew must get the cash And fast Along the way in their desperate race to find the cash before time runs out Cutlass Liz gave them an hourglass, filled with the sands that are act [...]


    11. When the pirates run out of cannonballs, they have to improvise We could fire the limes, sir, suggested the pirate with a scarf They re sort of the right shape Aaaarrr Fair enough, said the Pirate Captain But dip it in tar so they think it s a cannonball Otherwise we risk looking stupid Can we wear those dinosaur masks asked the pirate who was always getting nosebleeds.Of course they can, says the Pirate Captain The crew of nameless pirates is off on another adventure, this one with Ahab, obsess [...]


    12. The Pirates need a new ship, so they borrow heavily to buy a luxurious ship Threatened with Cutlass Liz s payment plan, they seek out six thousand doubloons, which happens to be Ahab s reward for the great white whale that bit off his leg Hijinks ensue in this hilarious, cleverly written, silly adventure that is highly reminiscent of Monty Python meets Monkey Island surrealist, childlike imagination and logic, in this charming and hilarious take on Moby Dick Grade A



    13. These books are so fantastically clever and funny it makes me sad people don t read them.




    14. Ham is very important to a pirate diet, and Ahab s okay even though he started out in that horrid Moby Dick book The Pirates help him track the whale To Las Vegas and beyond


    15. After the main mast falls over for the third time in a week the pirate with a scarf reluctantly and cautiously approaches the Pirate Captain about perhaps getting a new boat After admitting to his number two that perhaps covering the holes in his quarters with dashing pictures of himself isn t the best way to keep a boat afloat, seeing as a stiff breeze could conceivably kill off half the pirate crew and the Pirate Captain himself has never bothered to learn to swim he agrees that they go to Nan [...]


    16. Piratical ethics Not stealing from a man that offers you grog is just about at the top of the list , is one of the many points of etiquette one learns in this installment of The Pirates Voiced by the same actor that did the first book, the characterizations is delightful, yet, in this he has an American character hearing a British person attempt an American accent gives me empathy for how British people feel when an American attempts a British accent From from what I have heard in years past, mo [...]


    17. Pirates Whales Beards Shanties Las Vegas Swashbuckling Wait.Las Vegas Yep, and if you would like to know how a pirate ship can sail to Las Vegas, read this book You still won t know the answer, but you will have discovered Gideon Defoe, and that is something you need to do.


    18. This outing with The Pirates puts them with according to the respective different titles this book has had a Whaling, b Ahab, and finally c Moby Dick Naturally, all three make appearances to varying degrees, which means Pirate Captain s crew is, following an encounter with the surly one legged obsessive Ahab, in pursuit of the Great White Whale to pay off Cutlass Liz for the ostentatious new ship they ve bought from her.I don t know why, but this volume feels a little light on content, and that [...]


    19. So I read this thinking it was a new one but the version I read was The Pirates in an Adventure with Ahab Regardless of the title, it s funny and you should read it.


    20. The Pirates In an Adventure with Moby Dick Reissued is a very short book it takes less than an hour to read It s obviously aimed at prepubescent boys who are heavily into silly humour and some jokes and the sexual innuendo will be above their head I m a grumpy old geezer who get s it, hopefully, but does my age preclude me from getting the silly jokes I should hope not I will happily watch and re watch an Aardman production, and I read a fair number of YA books every year Further I would like ad [...]


    21. these pirates books are strangely brilliant the main character is the nefarious pirate captain, known throughout the seven seas for his luxurious beard ravenous appetite for ham his pirate crew is known only by distinguishing features the albino pirate, the pirate who always wears red, the pirate with the bedroom eyes, etc in this book, they team up with captain ahab, who is of course searching for the great white whale or rather, they team up in opposition to ahab as it were, the pirate ship ne [...]


    22. The pirates are back, but it seems that their piratical escapades may be in jeopardy Their boat is rapidly falling apart, so they pay a visit the boatyard owned by the fearsome Cutlass Liz, the most ferocious lady pirate ever to sail the seven seas who once ate twenty babies just to prove how ferocious she is She also is one of the most feared loan sharks, and when the Pirate Captain makes a typically extravagant gesture and buys her most luxurious ship on credit, he only has a limited amount of [...]


    23. I love this series Its dumb, but I just laugh out loud every time I pick the books up Gideon Defoe brings back The Pirates on another exciting adventure out at sea The pirate s ship is in need of some repairs and so they set out to meet up with Cutlass Liz, the scariest she pirate on the open sea She ate twenty babies one time Cutlass gives the pirates a fine boat on credit in which they must pay it back before the pirate bone dust in her timer runs out Off the pirates go, led by the Pirate Capt [...]


    24. The Pirates In an Adventure with Ahab is like the other pirate book by this author It is a hilarious parody of a pirate adventure It only makes sense that they would get involved in a whaling expedition That s exactly what they do They set sail after a white whale for an old man named Ahab.A text to text connection I can make is from this book to the book The Old Man and the Sea This connects because in the Old Man in the Sea he was devoting himself to hunting down this fish he wanted to catch I [...]


    25. I love English humor, and this book is just packed to the gills with it I cannot count the number of times I laughed out loud while I was reading, but it was a lot I absolutely loved The Pirates in an Adventure with Ahab and all of the wacky characters in this book I enjoyed the fact that the pirates didn t go around killing people left and right but would rather spend their time having fun These guys, and one gal, would never be considered the scoundrels of the sea They act like they are on a [...]
